Abstract

The active components which exhibit the improving effect on uremic symptoms have been isolated from Salviae miltiorrhizae Radix and characterized as magnesium lithospermate (1) and ammonium-potassium lithospermate (2). The stereostructure of lithospermic acid, which had remained unclarified, was also determined on the basis of chemical and spectroscopic data.
